Learning to fly?

A recent visitor who clung on to my truck's window from home till I got to work.

Talk about perseverance. I drove at 55 mph for about 2 miles on the service road. Rest of the places, I was driving at about 40. Total distance covered 6 miles.

When I got to work, I gently removed my little friend from the window using a little rag that I had in the vehicle and placed him in a flowerbed.
I did not know if he was learning to fly or he/she was long for this world at that point in time.

It was during my morning Tea that I saw my wife's text alerting me of Tom Petty's passing.
Favorite of many a music fan.

Linking with Saturday's Critters.
I will leave you with the one of my favorite songs by Tom Petty.

Adios for now.
Have a Happy Weekend!
Peace :)


  1. Nice ability to stick all the way… enjoyed both the music videos of tom petty. Thanks for lovely songs

  2. Hello, 6 miles is a long way for the bee to be stuck to the window. The flowerbed is a much happier place. RIP Tom Petty. Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  3. Amazing that it could hold on for that long!

  4. That's perseverance! You know how when you wake up a song will be stuck in your head from the day before. Of course the radio is playing a lot of Tom Petty right now and "Last Dance with Mary Jane" was in my head and as I scrolled down on your post, there it was.

  5. Strong and courageous bug ~ and great photos ~ ^_^

  6. Tom Petty and your hitch-a-ride friend had a lot in common.

  7. At least the fly was not invading into a new ecosystem. Brown tree snakes have wiped out most of the native birds on Guam and have been caught dropping out of jetliner wheel wells onto the taxiways at Honolulu. Come to think of it, we humans are an invasive species most places...

  8. A true 'stick with it' character.....

  9. I was sure surprised to hear of Tom Petty's passing when it happened...


Thank you for your visit and comments. I read all comments and I appreciate them all.
